Why are more expensive golf shoes worth the money?

Wearing a Better Golf Shoe

The shoes you're wearing when playing your favorite game may not make a difference in how well you score, but then can help you keep your feet firmly on the ground when swinging at the ball.
One example is the Ecco World Class line, which comes in solid colors, saddle-type shoes, and wingtips, all priced in the $400 range. These shoes are made with premium leather, easy for the eye to spot. The solid color line has insoles with internal stabilizers for added foot comfort and protection. The midsole is a good shock absorber and comes with a specially-designed heel counter. The outsole is made of leather that holds Ecco's Trisport Eclipse Cleats firmly in place. Other Ecco lines are priced much lower but do not have these premium features. Other brands are also worth considering, all in a lower price range. You can find Adidas golf shoes in the $170 range, Tehama Carnoustie for about $140, and Footjoy Classics priced in the $300 range.
